An axe is rather an inefficient tool for that. A chainsaw is better.

In general, it is better to call help. Cutting a fallen tree is a risky business for amateurs.

no, it's cutting the tree that has not yet fallen that is risky for amateurs

but yeah, axe is slow. But probably tow-rope and pull it out of the way would be better...

Yes they would.


A farmer pulled the trunk off the road with a tractor.

Bet you Jeremy cannot manage 110 pickups an hour or walk 11 miles in 8 hours ....... like normal Amazon staff can.

Don't forget that Top Gear have broadcast christmas specials as late as february in the past but Prime want one program in the can they can show clips of around christmas, probably a special with a full series in 2016.

I still think a couple of Ferraris in an Amazon warehouse doing 'challenges' would be good fun. Massive warehouses they does be them.

Fiat invented common-rail system for diesel engines. Its R&D department is not to be underestimated

I saw a queue of cars "rolling coal" here, had to search online to find what it was. Quite a weird habit, bad for the car, bad for the environment, bad for other drivers.

Korea wins with Renault in second place and lots of really ugly American cars following.

1. Ssangyong, a company that went bankrupt on ugly. Specialised in pure ugly with pseudo Mercedes fronts and real Mercedes engines bought in.



2. The Renault Vel Satis....what a horrible lump.



Then its America *.* from position 3 - 473 really. The Fiat Multipla mark 1 could sneak in at position 474 but I'd love to have one...it will be a design classic that one and the Chrysler PT Cruiser is only a netch behind.

I really liked the Vel Satis in his time, a very interesting car that I found beautiful!

But from Renault, there is more people who literally hate the Avantime



I personally LOVE it and when I was younger, I promised myself that I would buy it when I it will be possible, and I still want to do it!!

I don't know, there is something strange about this car, it looks like it has been designed few years ago, not 14 years ago!!

And the fact is that there is a important community of peoples who are still enthusiasts with this car !
